Forsyth goes green at annual Earth Day festival

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Forsyth Park was even more green than usual with the annual Savannah Earth Day festival and recyclerama Saturday.

The day kicked off with the recyclerama where residents could recycle items ranging from old tires to unused medications.

There were also nearly 100 earth day exhibitors there to share earth-friendly information - which included free workshops and demonstrations. They wrapped up with the fifth annual Savannah Wheels Earth Day bike ride.

"The focus of the event is to educate the public about some of the environmental concerns that we have in our community, but then also some of the solutions to those problems," said City of Savannah Environment Planner Margosia Jadkowski

This is the 13th year for the event, and organizers say it is one of the largest in the southeast.
